I’m a Charleston based wedding photographer but I absolutely love to travel! I create timeless, joyful & tangible memories for my clients.
Hi, I'm Emma
If you’re searching for the perfect outdoor Charleston wedding venue that bellows southern charm, look no further than Legare Waring House Weddings.
Whether it’s the moss-draped oak trees, the historic home, or the overall beauty of the property, this location gives off major Charleston vibes. It’s time to get comfy as we dig into all the good details about having your wedding at the stunning Legare Waring House!
Perhaps you’re just discovering the Legare Waring House while looking for the perfect Charleston wedding venue. No worries, as I’m about to show you some of my favorite Legare Waring House wedding photos and get into all their remarkable aspects!
Your wedding dreams will come true in this peaceful setting. At Legare Waring House, you’ll find the sort of romantic garden vibes associated with an estate venue. While this is primarily an outdoor wedding venue, a stately 1840s house is a timeless piece of the property to be used for an event or the perfect getting-ready space.
With a 15-minute drive from downtown Charleston, this historic venue is located inside Charles Towne Landing at 1500 Old Towne Rd. Charleston, South Carolina. You will enjoy complete privacy at this outdoor wedding venue, which is far away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
Here are five of my favorite features of this Charleston wedding venue:
You’ll find plenty of big oak trees, freshwater lagoons, and a wrought-iron water fountain on the property. There are endless opportunities for wedding photos!
At Legare Waring House, you can host up to 200 guests to attend your wedding, either outdoors or indoors. The house has plenty of room for the getting ready portion of the day. There are four bridal suites available upstairs, each with its own private bathroom. Having four rooms to spread out in is perfect for bridesmaids getting ready since there’s nothing worse than being cramped in one room! There’s a separate wing of the house for the gentlemen’s lounge, which includes a dressing room, private bathroom, card table, refrigerator, and of course, a tv.
Weddings under oak trees are breathtaking. After the ceremony, guests can head to cocktail hour overlooking the freshwater lagoon. Behind the house is where you can have a tented reception. With a live band playing into the evening, a tented reception can look stunning under the stars.
There is plenty of parking for all your guests, as they will park at the entrance, and then a shuttle will transport them to the venue. With this option, you won’t have to worry about cars in the background of your photos!
Having your wedding at Legare Waring House requires a licensed wedding planner for your event; however, you can choose all of your wedding vendors! The caterer and bar service vendor must be licensed and insured. The venue, or your wedding planner, can suggest some great wedding vendors if you’re searching for the perfect team!
The venue is not exactly in the heart of Charleston, but several hotels nearby make it convenient for your guests. For those who prefer to stay in downtown Charleston, it’s just a 15- to 20-minute drive! Here are some hotel recommendations when having your wedding here:
You will find that the cost of renting a wedding venue varies depending on what month you get married. For more information about Legare Waring House wedding costs, click here!
It’s convenient to rent this Charleston venue because it includes many features, such as access to the house and surrounding grounds, bridal suites, groom’s quarters, and a parking area that makes it easy for all of your vendors, and a catering kitchen.
In the south, bridal portraits are common, and you can arrange to have yours taken here when you schedule your wedding. For no extra charge, you can plan these photos during a weekday. Having your bridal portraits at this stunning location will give all of your images a cohesive look.
I’ve photographed a handful of weddings at this beautiful venue, and every single one is simply beautiful! The grounds are perfect for engagement photos as well. Legare Waring House is one of many fantastic wedding venues in Charleston, and I hope you are as enchanted as I am with it after reading this! If you’re searching for a Charleston wedding photographer, I’d love to be considered!
